Our sofa 3 ways project is always a fun one in the mix of our shoots. We take one sofa and bring three different styling takes to it to. This one we were very inspired by the icy cool neutral textured Scandinavian vibes.
We chose the Lennon Sofa to be the star of this project this time around. Once we had the buttery soft Lennon set in stone we started pulling some neutral mid century + some killer vintage furnishings to match the vibe.
We brought in our vintage black + white leather Marlow chair, the mid century metal Bertoia chair, which added a neat shape to the mix, and the African printed Mali chair for this. We knew we had to add some sort of color to break this vignette up a bit, so we brought in our peachy pink Vita sofa to add a pop of color. Our geometrical Dia coffee table has a light neutral top and black triangle iron base that brought in a nice shape. We layered a few neutral Moroccan rugs with diamond shapes that playfully match the geometric shapes of the Dia.
We have this thing with rugs – there are never too many! With this mentality we placed down a cowhide and a sheepskin to add some focal points and texture. In a neutral setup, texture helps heighten your most important elements and brings a natural balance to the eye while looking at an interior. With this in mind, we pulled some shearling + bah pillows to the set giving off their fluffy goodness.
Since we were working with our metal Bertoia chair we chose to stick to the silver theme to keep things icy cool. We chose to add in our Silver Side tables which have a neat diamond patter in the frames of each shelf, so we popped them on either side of the Lennon sofa to hold a curated puddle of props on each side of the sofa creating balance.
We went around the studio looking for some rad architectural pieces to add some ‘white noise’ to the back end of our photo. We were looking for our chippy mantle, but it was out living life at an event, so we used our white colonial styled mantle that we use for in-house styling needs and decided this piece was perfect for this situation. We slid it right behind that Lennon sofa, Decked it out with some silver props and a few himalayan salt tea light holders to keep that pop of pink going.
Next, we brought over our teal doors. I know teal… well teal on one side. The other side is a beautiful weathered white and they really made this vignette what it is. On the opposite side a large white patina’d shutter to keep the balance. We hung a white mirror right smack in the middle of the mantle and threw in a bulk of plants about the set.
This was a super fun concept to build around, those Scandinavians really know how to style a neutral home to perfection. So inspiring.
